How Often to Get 2019 Buick Encore Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2019 Buick Encore? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2019 Encore’s oil should be changed according to Buick’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Encore may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Buick recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Buick Encore. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Buick Encore Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Buick Encore. Buick has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2019 Encore. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Encore's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2019 Buick Encore

  • What can low oil do to my Buick Encore engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Encore’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Buick oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Buick Encore exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
